Off-the-Shelf and Custom Cordsets

SHINE supplies off-the-shelf cordsets and manufactures custom cordsets to specific lengths. We can support your custom designs and terminate ring terminals, quick disconnects, and any other connector that you specify. Here at our manufacturing facility in Adams, Massachusetts, we employ a highly trained workforce and used state-of-the-art equipment.

What are Cordsets?

A cordset is a power cable with molded connectors. They provide temporary electrical connections and have a male connector at one end and a female connector at the other end. These devices are flexible, easy-to-connect, and may include accessories such as fuses, or EMI shielding.

The male end of a cordset is a molded electrical plug with unshielded, exposed terminals known as pins or prongs. This end of the cordset attaches to an electrical outlet or socket. The female end of the cordset is a molded electrical receptacle into which pins or prongs are inserted. The female end attaches to electrically-powered equipment or an appliance.

Types of Cordsets

SHINE supplies the following types of cordset products.

  • North American power cordset products that meet IEC and NEMA standard, or that feature ROJ and strip styles
